The show room is free.  It shows off how the crafts can be integrated into your home

I honestly don't think they will hide it at all.  It's not like the school is really part of the park anyway as it will be an upcharge.  How is this any different then from the "test school" they did last year in Red Gold?  I see it being a very modern kitchen with country decor in this cabin.  It won't be seen by the "common guest" unless they pay to take the classes.

back to the topic -- McFarlands is a GOOD example of declining food quality while raising prices.

Yes this video is under investigation as are a few others.  Ride & Safety does not take these things lightly

The arena floor is not even close to where you eat.  Also they use "dust-less" dirt in the arena, so you don't even have that worry about.

DS is a lot of fun and if you have not attended it lately you are really missing out.  The food is excellent and the entertainment is wonderful and will keep your interest.  The only way you won't have a good time is if you force yourself to have a bad one by having a bad attitude even before you get there.... which is just silly.

I recommend it -- and so does Dolly  ;)

They build all of their rides that go into the parks.  They built TGS last year with S&S overseeing construction, they built PowderKeg, again with S&S overseeing construction -- shoot they even built WildFire

Well having large sections of each of the main theatres roped off with signs saying "Reserved for Show Lover's Pass" usually isn't a telltale sign of it existing. ;)  lol

^You didn't know because it WAS a "secret"  ;) :D

BS they don't do "preferred seating" -- it's called "Show Lovers Pass" and it took the place of the Chamber of Commerce building just inside the front gate across from the rental depot

No offense to some of you, but it seems as if you spent more time trying to figure out how to cheat then trying to enjoy the attraction the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

FWIW, the CHEAPEST gas in the Branson area is at the QT in Nixa.  ALWAYS gas up there before going into Branson as you will pay between 10-20 cents more in Branson then in Nixa because in Nixa you don't have to pay the tourist tax like you do in Branson.

ALSO, the rooms in Branson have a tourist tax added onto them whereas rooms in Branson West do not last time I checked

PRICELINE is your friend!

We usually stay at the Howard Johnson by what used be Starlite Theatre or at the Best Western Music City Inn across from Shoji.  We have never paid more than $40 to stay anywhere down there at brand name hotels using Priceline, and that includes peak season

Um, why don't you guys use Priceline and get a motel for under $40 bucks -- a name brand hotel at that?  That's how we roll.  ???

Wow, you car must get really poor gas mileage if you only live 2 hrs away and it costs that much to get there and back.  We live about 5 hours away and it costs us that much.  :-\

I don't think it will affect our traveling that much, because that is just what we do.  We'll just have to suck it up and realize that it will cost more to do so.
